Astronomers have discovered a planet that they think might be ideal for harboring life. They're calling it Goldilocks because it's not tooo hot or tooo cold... it's just right. We probably won't be visiting it in the near future, since it's 120 trillion miles away.

Very interesting. Though I agree, it is a bit of ways to travel. Laughing

And yet the universe is so vast that the Goldilocks planet is practically in our own backyard. The star it circles is 20 lightyears away (each lightyear equals about six trillion miles), and there are objects in the universe that are billions of lightyears away from us. What's six trillion times a billion?

I studied and deduced, and I have formulated an answer: A lot. batEyes
